"Working as an artist over the past 60 years, I have created thousands of artworks in such media as lead pencil, pen and ink, acrylic, watercolor and oil paint, mosaics and cloisonné enamel, as well as sculpted mixed-media pieces created from myriad organic, found objects.
When I began work as a landscape designer, I started creating three-dimensional art pieces and it became my passion to search for and collect objects from nature with which to compose animal and human figures, icons, pots and bowls. How surprising it is to me and wonderfully exciting to come upon natural objects on the ground, treasures to be reconfigured.
Most of my work with found objects involves assembling many singular pieces of nature to form a cohesive whole, joining separate pieces to make a community of shapes and colors. To join the parts involves adhering them to each other, sanding, mending broken places, and then more sanding by hand, sometimes up to a grit of 18,000 for a polished surface. I do this to achieve a soft smoothness that the viewer may desire to touch, hold, and to be with quietly." — Catherine Comstock
